We’ve seen our fair share of oddities pertaining to the Lego world, so we weren’t actually all that surprised when we found out there’s an actual life-size caravan made entirely out of Lego bricks.
You can even visit this interesting achievement if you happen to be in the vicinity of the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in the United Kingdom, where this life-size caravan made entirely from Lego blocks will also greet you with the Guinness record for “the largest caravan built with interlocking plastic bricks.” Its size is real – 3.6 meters long, 2.2 meters tall, and weighs in at no less than 1,200 kilograms (2,645 pounds), complete with 215,158 plastic Lego bricks. By the way, you could almost go camping in it because it caters to all amenities like any other caravan – it has electric lights and seats folding into a bed. Even the sink is real with running water – though the vegetables in the frying pan are obviously not.
The creators, Lego building specialists Bright Bricks, say they needed more than two months to build and they used more than 1,000 man-hours. A conventional caravan chassis does serve as the basis of the build – but all other elements were created from standard off-the-shelf Lego pieces, no bespoke elements have been included. The caravan is also not that new – it was done two years ago in support of the National Caravan Council’s “Freedom to Go” campaign, an educational endeavor.
